  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    As the parents, we need to teach our daughters to distinguish carefully the subtle differences between the actions by men. We must teach our daughters to recognize the difference between - a man who flatters her and a man who complements her, a man who spends money on her an a man who invests in her, a man who views her as his property and a man who views her properly, a man who lusts after her and a man who loves her, a man who thinks he is a gift to women and a man who believes she is a gift to him. Then we ought to teach our sons to be that real man who respects women and treats them with dignity and equality.
